No. Roadside assistance is a separate policy. I think the cost is around $129 a year. But they are always running first year signup deals. I have their roadside assistance, but have never had to use it..

No, the membership is separate from any other offerings. I have the membership, roadside assistance plan, and the medical assistance plan....each one different with their own charges. There is also an insurance plan. Call the phone number on your card, and ask about the various plans. If you ask for Debbie, (my daughter), in the Colorado office, she will be happy to help you for whatever your needs may be. Good luck and enjoy your travels.

Give them a call. You will find that the cost of roadside assistance is negotiable. I have never paid more than 1/2 the published price and several times have had a free membership year thrown in.

Good Sam used to be a really good "club" when it was truly a part of Trailer Life. The original TL owners were RVer's and Good Sam was sort of a good will thing for TL. During the past 8 or 9 years, they have gotten involved with several insurance schemes that are mainly designed to add to the bottom line of the Good Sam Club. Pay attention to what you are buying, check out any references that you can find, especially on their RV and tow vehicle insurance......
Seems to me to be an excellent example of "Let the buyer beware"

For whatever it's worth

Flo (Progressive) insures my RV. Roadside Assistance is about $11 a year when added to the policy. From what I've read, Progressive is responsive to and knows of the needs of RVers broke down on the side of the road.
If I can't fix it, I'll call Flo for a tow...

As others have said, it is not included.

However, if you are a Good Sam member and not part of the Roadside Assistance, you are guaranteed a lifetime of emails and membership cards that you can activate. They are relentless and won't stop. They seem to have lots of money for heavy mailings... so maybe they are overcharging?

You can opt out of Good Sam snail mails. I receive very few since I opted out about 2 years ago.

As others have mentioned the Road Assistance is separate from the regular membership. I would highly recommend the Road Assistance policy. It not only covers your RV but other vehicles that you own. I have never needed to use it on my AS but I have used it many times for my other vehicles -- towing, fixing flat tires, etc. The service has been great and they have never given me a problem. I have had the Road Assistance for over ten years and would not be without it.

As outlined previously, membership gets you access to some basic benefits (Camping World discounts, Fuel discounts etc), but other services are extra. Roadside Assistance offers discounts for year 1, and then if you buy several years at a time. Never used it but have heard good reports from those that have. Insurance pricing was competitive but jumps up in year 2 and onwards.

Good feedback re mail/emails previously. Email Preferences page has "50" different email options - takes quite a while to opt-out of each one.

We have GoodSam Roadside Assistance (and it is a separate product). Both our truck insurance (Ameriprise) and our trailer insurance (Progressive) have roadside assistance included ... but we opted to get GoodSam because we felt they would be better equipped to handle our needs while towing than companies that are not dedicated to RVs. We have used GoodSam one time ... when we punctured a tire on the road and got a flat (single axle, and thankfully, our tire pressure monitors alerted us that it was losing pressure in time to pull over and stop). We could have changed it ourselves but we decided to use GoodSam. We were impressed with the way they responded and handled the problem. We were on I-10 between the the AZ/NM border and Bowie, AZ...not completely out in the middle of nowhere, but not near a metro center either... We were back on the road in 2 hours, which I didn't think was bad considering our location, etc...
